Self-Publishing for You
Publishing Week
I think nearly every writer has started out hoping to have their name printed on the cover of a book, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.  There's also nothing wrong with not doing that the traditional way.  You're allowed to self-publish for yourself and not worry about selling books or creating a following.  I know, because I did it.  And it's not as hard as you might think.
A Quick Intro

A couple years ago, I was really itching to publish a book.  But I knew I didn't want to go through a publisher.  I also didn't want to deal with all the hassle of marketing and trying to sell it.  I really just wanted a book that had my name on the cover and my stories on the inside.  Simple.  Getting it at the lowest cost possible was also a concern, because two teenagers and a couple dogs doesn't exactly make my checkbook overflow.  I started searching the internet for a way to accomplish this and have

Gluttony the Child
Don’t be fooled, Gluttony is older than he looks. He was abused and starved horribly when he was young and is permanently stuck in a childlike state....until he turns into a giant owl demon with tentacle limbs and a giant gaping mouth with rows of sharp teeth on his stomach. 
‘Other than that, Gluttony comes off pretty shy. He doesn’t speak, and doesn’t attack unless commanded. He seems to enjoy Envy’s company, in an almost little brother/big sister way. 
Art made with ArtStudio, and (c) me. Please don;t use without permission.

Sloth the Outcast
Sloth doesn’t do much. She kinda stays home, half dress, scaring people with her stench rather than her demon. I haven’t really come up with too much for her yet, but she was outcasted from her friends and family. The demon doesn’t possess her so much as kinda takes settment in her home and ward off/eat whoever comes too near.
Made on ArtStudio with my iPad.

Lust the Twins
Meet Lust. I haven’t decided their individual names yet, but they’re twin siblings who are possessed by a snake demon with two heads. There’s hardly any of their humanity left, if at all. They had probably one of the most traumatic pasts of all the sins. They don’t remember it themselves anymore, since their original souls are gone. The demon(s) that possess them aren’t very good at acting like normal people. So, while they can talk, walk, manipulate and “mimic” personalities and body language of people they see, sometimes the demon(s) will slip up and the male head will talk out of the female body and vice versa. They do everything together since they can’t physically be apart for further than a small distance. The human forms have an appearance of separate bodies, but the two headed snake just has one. The twins tend to act like one another since it’s one demon controlling two bodies, so sometimes they blink at the same time, drink at the same time, etc...The demon itself is intelligent, but has an unquenchable lust for blood and flesh. They lure their prey in, usually through sexual means. They used to be prostitutes, and enjoy “playing with their food” so to speak.
They were the first sins I drew I believe. I just wanted to draw a vampire girl and a male version of lust, and thought the two kinda looked scarily badass together. So that happened.

Wrath the Artist
Here’s Wrath! She’s pretty pissed. XP lol
I’ve already went through her background on another image I’ve done of her/them. She’s Pride’s little sister and is well known for her temper and the “art” she makes using her victims’ bodies and blood. Her demon is sort of a hulking type, with enlarged fists that can smash anything.

Impossigirl
‘Tis was going to be a T-shirt design. I think eventually I’ll get to dong that. Impossigirl was made when I was 12. I wanted to come up with a superhero that had every ability that I thought was cool. She was my guilty pleasure, self-insert OC for a time. Now she’s become something else. For one, she doesn’t have a gazillion superpowers anymore, just one. But, her power is held back a lot by her own insecurities. One of the messages I want to portray of my superhero story is how one can overcome their own insecurities and find their inner strength. Sounds super cheesy, but it’s the kind of hope I needed when I was 12. I hope to help other young people find their inner strength as well. 
Alright, that’s enough sappiness for one day. 
Made with alcohol based markers and pens.

  • Drinking: I\'m gonna get some water!
So, I figured that my last update is a bit old and I should tell about some recent happy tidings. 

First, I'm having a lot of good professional art and graphic design related projects that I'm either engaging in or have the opportunity to engage in, so I'm working on applying myself to those projects and opportunities and getting quite excited about the experience. I also have some other work that I need to post up here soon. It's all sitting in my stash and on my desktop, so I gotta get to it. :)

I'm really quite excited about what's going on in life right now. I recently had my 22nd Birthday, for one thing. It's so weird being in my twenties. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I notice my face is different than what it used to be when I was 17 or even 18. I've come so far and changed so much. I'll be graduating next semester and making a lot of big changes in my life. I want to thank you guys for supporting my work. I'll be continuing posting work up here, and hopefully more frequently now that I have my Superteen comic started. I'm so happy with the response from you guys. I've had this story since I was 12 and I'm happy that I've finally shared it with you. Since I'll be taking only 4 classes this coming semester I'll have a bit more space and time to do this thing. 

Christmas is coming soon and I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas (Or Happy Hannakah, or Kwanza, or Winter Solstice, or any other holiday you celebrate), and a Happy New Year. I really hope something good happens to each and every single one of you, even if it's something small, I wish you all the best this season. 
I'll be seeing my boyfriend soon. I can't wait to see the look on his face when he sees me. I'll record our meeting and see if it's okay with him that I post or share it. Either way, I will talk about it if asked. :)

My gallery here is changing to become more professional and I need to match that a bit. I'm thinking of creating a website where I can share my work, update, have a blog and do basically everything I really want to do as a freelance artist. If there's anyone here who can give me tips on creating a website, let me know. I have made a design for what I would like the site to look like, but I' clueless when it comes to html coding and other things like that. Anything can help.

So, if anyone is curious about how I'm feeling personally: The counseling has helped a lot with personal problems and I've really learned a lot about myself and other people. As of today, I'm a little stressed with all these projects I've got to do, but I have faith that it will all be okay in the end. My faith in God has changed, but it's still strong. My perspective on life is a bit different, but it's all for the better. Legend of Korra has ended...honestly I'm a bit disappointed with how the plot developed. There was so much potential for character development, but in the end it all fell short. The plot pandered in more than one way and it weakened to overall development with the characters. Now I'm in the mood to watch more anime again just for something that's decently written. If there's anything I've learned from Korra is that it is very much possible for good writers to write poorly from time to time. It's okay in the end and the show did have it's amazing moments that were written beautifully. The show had so much potential for great things but in the end fell short in regards to character development. 

Speaking of writing, I need to get back into doing that more often. I enjoy writing and if I wrote in my notebook similar to how I did with sketching, I could become quite good at it. Also, I've been getting into gaming a lot more recently. Fire Emblem Awakening and Animal Crossing have been on my mind and are great for relieving stress...but also very good at making me procrastinate. ^^; Gosh, I get so many ideas for fanworks nowadays. It's time I execute these things and have fun with my art and writing again. 

Until next time guys, peace!

This is to donate for commissions. Simply donate here for payment. Just make sure you send me a note before or after to let me know your request and that you've payed.

Commissions

Commissions available! (no discounts or art trades this time. See steekira.deviantart.com/art/Up… for why.)


Details:

Will draw: Just about anything! I'm open to new challenges.

Will NOT draw:
Anything pornographic, and this includes both sexual and violent themes.
Yaoi, Yuri, shojo or shonen ai, incest, beastiality or hentai all for personal reasons. Please, don't read into it. (Kissing, hugging, holding hands, and cute snuggling is fine as far as pairings go. I just won't be drawing any explicit sex scenes or anything like that.) Basically, anything you won't show your Grandma.

However...

If there is something you'd like drawn for you that qualifies for any of the above, I'm wiling to compromise and make something somewhat related to what you want. For example, you have a scene that you know is quite gory. I'll draw blood, I'll draw people reacting to the scene, I just won't draw explicit gore or anything sadistic. Hopefully this makes sense. I won't draw porn, but I'm open to drawing non-sexual nudity. I won't draw incest, yaoi, or S&M, but I'm willing to draw characters together. It'll just be more open to interpretation or brotherly. Again, please don't read into this. It's all for personal reasons.

Pricing: (It will be discussed, but here are the basics for what I do. I accept in American currency. At this time I'm not accepting points.)

Sketch: $4.00

Black and White (ink): $6.00

Color: (See details below)
------------------------------------------

Headshot: $3.00

Bust Shot (head to chest): $4.00

Half-body (head to waist): $5.00

Full Body: $6.00

Extra characters: $1.00 each


Background (undetailed/one-color): $6.00

Chibi: $6.00

Other/special/big projects: $3.00 per hour
(What qualifies? Comic pages, CD covers, detailed backgrounds, zentangle, realism, clothing, plushies etc)

----------------------------------
Color Pricing Details:

Colored Pencils: $10.00

Alcohol Markers: $15.00

Digital: $15.00

Watercolor or Acrylic paints: $20.00

Mixed Media: $25.00

----------------------------------------------
Hand Painted Clothing!!!!!
With these, we'll discuss Pricing, but it will depend on whether you want me to buy you a piece of clothing or you wish to send me something to paint. (The latter is recommended, simply because it would be cheaper for you. I charge for shopping expenses.)

will NOT paint or make: Undies, swimsuits or other fetish clothing or objects.
-----------------------------------------------------------
How pricing works: Say you wanted to purchase a commission. You'd pick whether you want a sketch, a black and white line art or a color drawing. Then you decide whether you want a head shot, full body, or any extra characters (etc). If it's colored then you've got to decide how you want it colored. Painted? Copic Markers? Etc...Then you add all the pricing up. For more complex comcepts, rather than charging by the individual parts, I'll charge by hour instead. This also qualifies for clothing. I also charge for shipping if you want originals given to you. If you have further questions, just send me a note.

To make a request, send me a note. I use paypal for payment. If you'd like your request shipped to you, put your shipping address inside your note. Don't worry, I'm not a stalker.

If you want a commission I can be contacted either through e-mail (catrobat@yahoo.com) or PM.
